    I found this site today, the day of my third chemo treatment. I am 39 and was diagnosed with breast cancer in April this year. It has been a rollersoaster. am going to have 6 times chemo, a mastectomy and all the lymph nodes under one arm removed,and then radiation . My daughter is 2 1/2, and I so badly want to be able to see her grow up, to be here for her for many,many years. I know that breast cancer is highly treatable,but it is still cancer,and women still die from it as well. I am scared but trying to stay strong. Pernille.

    My own mother passed away at the very young age of 29 from ovarian cancer. For me those words were always a death sentence. Then on Dec 4 2008, I heard those words.

    I had just turned 41 and have my very first mammo in Oct. they told me I needed to come back fro more pictures, then I was told I needed a needle biopsy. Since then I had a lumpectomy, re-excision, rads,(no chemo, for which I am grateful) genetic testing showed BRCA2+, so I also had an ooph.
    Just found this site!
